Most new hires at SAP want to hit the ground running – and we can help with that. We’ll assign a buddy and a mentor to guide you through your first month and beyond. Your buddy will work in the same team and office as you. He or she will answer all your day-to-day questions – like who’s who and where you can find the cappuccino machine. Your mentor will be a senior employee in your field. He or she will help you increase your knowledge and skills in a safe and supportive environment – and provide guidance on your work deliverables. In addition, our onboarding programs will equip you with the skills, knowledge, and tools you need to get up-to-speed quickly.

The best customers in the world

Our 350,000 customers come in all sizes and work in every industry and geographic region you can imagine. They include 87% of the Forbes Global 2000 and 98% of the world’s top 100 most valued brands. Some are big household names, while others are small but ambitious start-ups that are just beginning to grow.
